The principle of absolute simultaneity is proposed. A new derivation of the Lorentz transformations is given, by only using a constant roundtrip velocity of light. A preferred frame is predicted and examples are given for a better understanding of the theory, including a visual derivation. It is compatible with quantum mechanics and allows us to formulate a consistent quantum theory of gravity.
